Camera. Atik 414ex.

Thought I would submit this image of the Rosette Nebulae as it was taken with a 120mm F5 Skywatcher Achromat Refractor. Couldn’t believe how a scope not recommended for imaging could capture such a target. It proves to me that a good Achromat lens can cope very well with a Narrow Band target. So it doesn’t need to cost the Earth if you pick the correct subjects.
